This is a pen and ink drawing I did awhile back, but I decided to add some color using water colors. I was going through some stuff. It's like therapy, filling in an entire page.....

Very unique

This is the kind of stuff that inspres myself to just design some art myself and you have created such a creative element here its alost like a timeline of some sort I love the added color here, I have no changes in mind for this piece as it was its own style of creativity, This contains an abstract kind of beauty leaving viewers the complete freedom to contemplate the possible meaning behind its creation, Every aspect of this particular piece come together harmoniously transition of one place to another is swift, leaving each place sturdy enough to stand on its own while still relying on those surrounding it for the highlighting of its purpose, Various shades and levels of saturation also pertain to the abstractness blending well for the making of a wondrous piece, Line work for the spirals are especially dark and thick being more prominent in the drawing despite lacking color, It further stimulates the mind, and provokes some form of deliberation in theme and tone.

I have no changes in mind for this piece as it was its own style of creativity

I love how intricate and detailed your work is. It's pretty impressive. I like how I have to turn my head to see everything xD (No, seriously, I actually like that.) Really pretty colors and artwork :D!

Thank you very much! :-)

like the title

Idk what 2 say (no really.) It gives this type of eastern vibe (like the ouroboros symbol except with kick ass graphic design.) I like the different artistic design given 2 this (a caribbean theme with the plants , the forest/grass with mushrooms and plants) and the fact that you use both black and white and color. I like the theme at the end (i wish it was all that easy) maybe life? it also reminds me of outsider art (the style usually has a lot of different elements involved within an art piece your painting reminds me of Adolf Wölfli's artwork.) Hell of an awesome job, one that is worth beyond a 5/5. It contained all the essentials of an art piece, good structure, good themes, good title, and overall amazingness.)

VariantSeven responds:

Thank you! I really appreciate the review, you could critique art for a living, you're very observant. You were right about life being a theme through out, it was. I was going through a lot when I made this. Thank you for the kind words. :-)

If everyone drew so wondrously...

It'd be less amazing. Thankfully, you're a gem.
I must admit your art work gives me the chills.
In a good way, of course.

Thank you! :-)
